The wide shot of Kazanmori is coming together. All the little buildings is taking FOREVER. FOREVER AHHHRNOEI$GNER:FNREOUGBNEROUFBWURG
But you know what? I’ll be worth it in the end so I’m still trucking on through.
It’s a very big canvas, about twice the size of the BG settings for the game. So I’ll be able to “zoom in” to certain areas as well.
I have a few wide shots of the city I was going to draw too but….DO I REALLY HAVE THE STRENGTH????
To be fair, the other ones are much “flatter”
I’ve literally never liked Shane (from way back, I was there when youtube was a baby and I just straight up disliked him)
I don’t know how anything trusts a word he says.
I don’t know how people didn’t already know his history.
The internet does forget some things I guess
I hope someday soon someone will remake the KH2 Lingering Will cutscenes in KH3 graphics
I know movies involving black people constantly have a “white savior” issue, but you know? I feel like Candyman doesn’t quite fit that description.
Maybe if you have a surface level understanding, yeah. It might seem like a white savior movie. Helen saves the day by rescuing the baby from the flames! Their savior!
But no. Helen CAUSED this whole problem in the first place.
Although she claimed she was investigating Candyman to “save” the people living in the projects from their twisted urban legend, we can clearly see that’s not what she’s trying to do. SHE’S curious about the story and will use any excuse to dive in. Something draws her to it, so she won’t butt out. Once she has her pictures and people are interested in printing her story, she’s in heaven and clearly doesn’t care about much else.
She provoked the real Candyman to come out of hiding and kidnap the baby. Had it not been for her snooping around, that baby would’ve been mostly fine.
That’s the only effect she had on the people of Cabrini-Green. She saved a baby she put in harms way. By rescuing baby Anthony, she is righting her wrongs. She paid for it with her life. She didn’t make their life better. If anything, they believed and feared Candyman even MORE than before. Nothing was fixed. Nothing was resolved.
If we look at examples of other white savior movies, like “The Help”, you can clearly see the difference. In that movie, the point was there are “good” white people and “bad” white people. The “good” white people will rescue the poor black servants from the “bad” white people so that they can serve the “good” white people instead.
It’s this idea that black people need a humble kind white savior to bring them out of poverty and sadness.
There’s none of that in Candyman.
This is why I’m excited for the sequel. I hope the screenwriters know that Helen wasn’t a savior. I say that because, I don’t think Helen should be shit on or ripped apart? She made a mistake and paid the price. She did do the right thing in the end so I do think she deserves some respect.

Alright, time to try this commission thing again
It’s been rough for everyone in these trying times, and I know my mental health has taken a beating. What does cheer me up is providing works that bring a smile or incoherent excited noises to others, so here’s my prices and terms and conditions thusly for single character/creature commissions. I actually haven’t had many people for commissions in general so if some could help me out that’d be greeeeat~
‘Clean’ Rough Sketches: $6, for humanoid or otherwise
Character Busts: w/ color are $20, w/out are $14
Full Characters: w/ color are $35, w/out are $24
Monsters and Big Beasties; slightly dependent on how much detail and work, but baseline $45 for extra awesome lineart, $60 for the color and detail treatment.
I’m comfortable with a bit of blood and gore, and I’m good for characters from existing works (I am a huge fan of Kingdom Hearts, Dark Souls, Soulsborne series, DnD/Pathfinder/etc, ) and am good for OCs, and I am willing and open minded to hear stuff out and accept references and suggestions.
For more thorough work that goes into essentially visual concept development for creatures and monsters of many sorts, be it for game or story of any kind, I have conceptualizing commission prices up as well. Note that conceptualization and flat out singular character/creature commissions are two separate price sets to deal with.
I will not do 18+ material, snuff, mechs and tech, or anything that is overly explicit. If there is something brought up that does make me uncomfortable that I forgot to list, I’ll let it be known asap.
And of course if you’re not looking for commissions but know someone else who might, let em know!
i’m sorry but ren and mogami both being like “yes im love you but im not at a place in my life where im ready for a relationship yet so for now let’s continue being friends” and both being happy w it?? that’s so healthy im so happy for them they’ve grown so much🥺
One of my fav tropes is the girl who never had friends makes one (1) female aquaintance that has a potential to be a friend and romanticizes the friendship through every stage of it. Just “OMG we could possibly be friends and do fun things together.” to “She got me a gift for my birthday when I didn’t even think she knew it and listened to me about my problems and that’s what friends do and ahhhhhh.” to “When someone amazing marries my beautiful and talented BEST FRIEND, what if she asks me to be in her wedding? I’ll melt.”
It’s a dynamic I saw first in Skip Beat with Kyoko and her Moko and I never got tired of it.
Leslie Knope and Ann Perkins comes to mind as well.
Maybe Scorpia to Cartra in She-Ra, but I haven’t gotten far enough in the show to know if they actually become friends.
